"I sculpt inside store purchased toys, allowing the exterior form to dictate the shapes of the inner skeleton and organs.
This piece was sculpted for my "MOLT" sculpture show at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery which opened February 6th, 2015." - Jason Freeny
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, Just outside Washington DC. His early childhood was spent surrounded by his two sisters and hippie parents, his mother a Go-go dancer costume designer and his father a professor of painting and sculpture at the University of Maryland. He was inspired by Pop, modern and surrealist art as well as Saturday morning cartoons.
After high school, he attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, studying Industrial Design. He spent his early career as a corporate muralist, then as a freelance prop and set designer with MTV Networks. He moved on to digital graphics and mobile interfaces with ESPN. He spent a short period as a toy inventor as well as a interactive web designer.
Jason's early success as an artist came with his creations of a series fictional anatomical character schematics and illustrations in 2007 but was most noted when he began creating anatomical toy sculptures shortly after. His sculptural and illustration work has been the basis for several mass produced toys. He has collaborated with Hong Kong-based Toy2R (working on the Qee figurines), Hong Kong-based Fame Master toys producing Gummy bear anatomical toys, United States-based FCTRY producing the "CAPSL" collectable series and United States-based Marbles the Brain Store creating Freeny's Brain Cube puzzle.
